to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violating his probation. as part of a probation deal, he was barred from using computers on the internet without special permission. a term he is now suspected of breaking. a federal judge denied him bail c
to the department of defense, quote, we are committed to working together to help forge a balanced bipartisan deficit reduction package to avoid damage to our national security, important domestic priorities, and our economy. joining us now from manchester, new hampshire one of the gang's members, democratic senator j n jeanne shaheen. great to have you on the program. >> mice to be with you. i would say, alex, it's not a new gang of six, i think but it does reflect a number of different groups that have been meeting and talking in the senate about the need to address sequestration, and i was part of the six of us who signed that letter in talking about what we could do to try and reassure the public, to reassure the markets, that we understand we've got to address this problem and we've got to do it in a way that provides certainty for businesses, for consumers, so that we have a long-term solution. >> senator, i want to get your thoughts, it is, i think, laudable that this is a bipartisan gang, as other gangs have been. four of the gang members, for lack of a better term, voted for the bud
the implication is the defense between the israel defense and department of defense everything our understanding is as tight as every. there just seems to be a personality conflict between netanyahu and obama so what? >> it just happens to be a personality conflict with the man who has to make the decision whether to do the bombing or not. you overcome the personality conflict and you deal with it. you don't go hide in a shell and be afraid to talk to him. >> would you be meeting with morsi today? >> if i met with netanyahu -- >> would you be meeting with both of them? >> i'd meet with both of them. he is not doing the job of being candidate. president p.m. has decided he regards as a bump in the road he can take the time not to be president the next six weeks and let it play itself out. >> how do you know this isn't about a bump in the road? >> i don't know. all of those people being killed in syria doesn't seem like a bump in the road. >> dancing or march of 2005, it's democracy. there was a lot of chaos going on in iraq 2005. we ven said when we're there, democracy is messy. >> how long ago w
in the campaign in a defensive posture, which is problematic. >> mark, is that the reason that the conversation was avoided? we heard so many times that governor romney would describe bain and his role there and the value of that company. we know it's private equities. we know how that game works, at least to some degree. none of us are wall street men and women in the conversation, but we know the realities of private equity. is this tape or some of the vision for bain capital the very reason we didn't hear him solidly defend that record because his vision was to harvest the profits of some of these companies they went in? >> well, i don't think we really know the reality, because we haven't had the longer discussion. we have a perception about them very shorthanded as mitt romney was doing in that tape. he was shorthanding what parlt of their business objective is. as part of that business objective, they saved weak companies. by saving weak companies, those companies didn't go out of business. they did, in fact, save lots of jobs that probably would have -- that would have been lost because
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this protest in benghazi started off as a protest against an american installation there, about that anti-islam video that denigrated the prophet mohammed and then spontaneo spontaneously turned into something more and may have included elements of more organized elements. and that's something that republicans say that susan rice intentionally lied about, the spokesman saying last night from the white house, the administration has -- thinks that susan rice has done an extraordinary job. it was not her personal opinion that she was putting forth on those sunday shows. >> all right. mike viqueira. thank you very much for that. important story this morning. >>> to front page politics new this morning, mitt romney says he's looking forward to the upcoming presidential debates, first one's on wednesday. >> i think it
smith, an 18-yard strike. the past decade the ravens had one of the best defenses in the league and here is why. kerry williams picked off weedon, 65 yards the other way, baltimore went on to win it. >>> the players have been locked out for 13 days in the nhl and yesterday the league canceled the preseason. the two sides meet today in new york. >>> baseball, rangers play-off bound, beat oakland to clinch the al west. a home run and three rbis. they won it 9-7. then you have the white sox in the middle of a late september collapse. evan longoria and the rays won it 3-2. the sox dropped 8 of 9. chicago's loss is detroit's game. doug fister made american league history, struck out nine straight. tigers held on to win it 5-4. >>> and finally, the mets r.a. dickie picked up the 20th win of the year. everybody is talking about travis snyder. a shot deep to ride. snyder tracked it down. scaled the fence like spiderman and made the grab. cool, calm and collected. snyder hauled it in. that is not only the catch of the day, that is the catch of the year. that's your "first look" at sports. have a
through our defense secretary, other senior officials in the administration -- >> they said it's on the table. >> no one believes that because they've repeatedly spelled out how disastrous it would be, bad for america, wouldn't wipe out the iranian nuclear program, how much they are opposed to military action. they say it's on the table but no one believes it's on the table. we're not saying the military action should be used. but we are arguing that the threat of military action should be credible so it focuses the iranian leadership on reaching some diplomatic solution so if the threat of military action is credible you increase the likelihood of a diplomatic solution. you increase the likelihood that the iranians choose to freeze and stop their program, their nuclear program, race to a nuclear weapon rather than risk military action. by the president and his senior officials repeated projection broadcasting that military action is on the table but doesn't have a lot of teeth to it doesn't give the iranians incentive to get off the course they're on today. that's his point. y
issues, attacking the president on sequestration, the looming defense budget cuts effectively linking defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed
. and that's on offense. then you think about what he has to do on defense. he's going to be on the defense on the 47%. he's going to be on defense on his tax question. i mean, this is a guy who doesn't have very much to work with at this point. so it's hard for me to see, even if he doesn't make a major gaffe, which he does on a weekly basis, even if he doesn't, what ammunition does he have to actually have a good showing? >> i'm told there are examples of elections turning on debates, president bush for example started gaining on al gore when they faced off in 2000. is it usually the case that debates are quite the kind of game-changer that everybody thinks this one has to be for romney to do anything successfully in november? >> no, it's not. the historical data shows that i think we sort of exaggerate the role of debates. i would tip my hat to the washington monthly that has a nice article that goes through some of the political science and polling on this. it says they have a marginal impact. one notable exception was the 2000 debates between bush and gore where it appears gore pllo tw
due respect, but he also can't let that put him into a defensive posture where he doesn't -- i agree with karl rove, actually call out the president's policy. so i wouldn't phrase it as calling out the president, but calling out the president's policies. if he has a substantive debate about the president's economic policies and what has happened with them, then i think he stays in a very safe territory. >> richard, the obama campaign going pretty far to lower expectations over the past couple of weeks. a recent report on air force one, one of the traveling press secretaries asked by reporters what is the worst thing that could happen on wednesday night. her response, quote, well, he could fall off the stage. she we replied of the president. what do we expect from president obama in denver? is he going to be sharp or is he going to be rusty? >> look, i think he is going to be plenty sharp. remember, mitt romney spent all those debates, the 23 where everybody said he won 19 of them debating within a pretty narrow window ideologically. barack obama has been dealing with people all acros
. >>> finally over the weekend republicans kept the white house on the defensive. after the friday announcement from the director of national intelligence, talk about a 5:00 news dump, that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was, in fact, deliberate and organized. on friday peter king called on ambassador susan rice to resign saying, quote, the fact is she gave out information which was either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong and there should be consequences for that. called her, quote, an enormously capable person. in an unusual statement on friday, the office of the director of national intelligence explained the changing description of the events of the attack, quote, in the immediate aftermath, there was information that led us to aseventy that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in cairo. as we learned more about the attack, we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists. the administrations appeared
and words probably designed to help romney. on the other hand, you have barack the defense minister trying to help obama with the public words and statements. >> i think brack -- >> how will that dynamic be affected by the november election result here? >> i don't think it will be very -- i mean, it might affect the jewish population vote more or less but i don't think ehud barack, the defense minister endorsed -- >> when you have netanyahu going out of the way to talk about -- present the image of strained relations and then choosing to go public and say israel's never had a better friend in the white house than barack obama. that seems -- >> when you are prime minister, you have the upper hand. you're the voice of the country. you are the most important man. you know, when jimmy carter used to say, israel has no morn policy and only domestic policy. this time in history we see somebody interfering and clearly endorsing one of the sides and it's never happened in the history. and it's doing it in a very delicate moment for the u.s. relation in the middle east, doing it in a -- plus even h

a wonderful defense of american style democracy, american exceptionalism, if you will. democracy isn't just about voting. it's not one person vote one time. it's a culture. it thooz involve free speech, part of which will be the right to voice opinions that other folks won't like and i thought the government should not be in the business of suppressing opinion. you heard that from a constitutional law profess sor. we have the most robust freedom of speech. speak up against it. before we had the first amendment, i got word in this month, the 225th anniversary of the year when the constitution was presented to the people. this audacious continental wide vote, not just vote, but amazing free speech experience. for one year, up and down a continent, the most wide open, robust, uninhibited free speech, intense opinions, no one dies. the whole year, you compare it to the french revolution or american revolution, proand against and that is the tradition that barack obama, i think wonderfully defended at the u.n. american exceptionalism. >> immaterial to ask with us being an outlier means we lose s
spring that has been criticized over the last ten days temperature pfs a broad defense of the arab progress that has occurred during the last two years and an answer to those who said in the original statement that sparked the controversy from the embassy in egypt where we didn't seem to be standing up for free speech even while condemning the video. so with the time that they have had, this is the time of thing that was being sought a week ago here in america to put to bed some of the critics. so and you have broyou have a b to the approach to the arab spring, a few lines clearly intended for the american audience about bin laden and the end of the war in traffic. you don't have much on the central policy issue facing our nation, that we have tens of thousands of troops at war in afghanistan and the venue where you might have built some support for that, that doesn't happen. but i think you should remember that syria is one of the issues that people will critique the president on. it's described as an observer. the united states is a participant like many countries in this conflic
defense on our db, and they call us for pass interference and that joke of a roughing the passer when we had an interception. give me a break. i'm done with the nfl. done until we get refs. >> right. >> that's it. finally got that off my mind. >> willie, can we talk about scott brown? >> boy that scott brown race, holy cow, that's crazy. >> i thought we would have been over this native american question, but apparently it's coming back. >> elizabeth warren, senator scott brown is getting personal. it has to do with elizabeth warren's claims of native american heritage. both sides are airing out the debate in tv buys across the state. >> i'm scott brown and i approve this message. >> elizabeth warren is trying to put questions about her heritage behind her. >> she admitted to identifying herself as native american to employers. she's facing tough questions about whether she claimed to be a minority for professional gain. >> warren did give an answer, the problem is, it keeps changing. >> is there anything else that will come out about you that we don't already know? >> you know, i don't t

democracy nor from protecting freedom of speech. indeed, the president extended his spirited defense of free expression even to remarks against himself. >> as president of our country and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. [ applause ] >> i wonder who he's been talking about there. let's get right to our panel now. in washington dana mill bank, political columnist for "the washington post." in west palm beach, florida, msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson who we have persuaded to leave his mojito by the poolside and in washington, political analyst david corn. david, we know mitt romney behind closed doors is quite willing to let all sorts of thorny international issues be kicked down the road. yet today he complains of our being at the mercy of events. now, should we assume that given his running of a single olympics in utah he's now qualified to dominate every world nation and make them behave as we'd like them to? >> excuse me, you took what he said today serio
here? >> well, you know, i think the president, in his defense, very hard working person, he was on the phones to mohamed morsi after our embassy was attacked in cairo two weeks ago, working, of course, also on the phone to prime minister netanyahu the night before that, so the president's engaged and leading the united states in the world. the symbolism is important as you are inferg and would have been been better if the president would have been able to have a few bilateral meetings with the top leaders, leaders of the middle east in crisis, but there's no question that he's on top of his game and he's had a very successful run at foreign policy over the last three and a half years and it's interesting, andrea, to see that foreign policy has made a real comeback, right in the heart of this political campaign right now, everything from the middle east crises to the iran problem with israel and with us, and, of course, china as a scapegoat for both candidates really, and i think it's important that we continue this discussion of foreign policy as the debates approach over th
the use of violence. and yesterday, joel, president obama offered this robust defense of freedom of speech as a pre-eminent right in our country but meanwhile while this speech comes together is there a conflict between those two visions? >> thank you, thomas, for having me. there's really not a conflict. in a sense, president obama and netanyahu bracketing the speeches today of ahmadinejad and morsi and we witness something fascinating which is that morsi shown that egypt is now taking a more aggressive leadership role in the middle east while iran has become more isolated, is on the ropes and ahmadinejad is season almost as a past, a clowny-type figure but this discussion of freedom of speech, of how to deal with violence against embassies, it's the president speaking with morsi about this and calmed down the situation in cairo so i think it's a dialogue to see more of and doesn't seem to be a clash not workable. >> all right. so jim, as joel said, egypt wanting to take more of a leadership role here and iran astro sized than ever before and talking about syria, world leader after world
